One of the major concerns for kids with down syndrome are heart problems; in fact 45% percent of down's kids will have them. So every kid born with downs has to see a cardiologist within the first month of their life. Our first visit to a cardiologist will be next Tuesday at Children's in Columbus. Our local pediatrician sees nothing wrong with her heart now, but he tells us that he honestly can't tell that much just by listening to her heart. So we really don't know that much about her heart yet.

Monday, we go to see an eye doctor, eye problems are another major concern for kids with downs. (To be honest there seem to be a million conerns.) So when you pray for our family this weekend pray that her heart and eyes will both be in perfect health.
